Spent one night in this parador, taking dinner in the restaurant, which was very good. Room was extremely comfortable. Spent time viewing the town, and enjoyed the walk around the city walls, including the information provided by the electronic device as part of the tour. Well worth a visit ...
This Parador was within the walls of the old city and was just wonderful Rooms smaller than previous Parador we stayed in (Toledo) but equally as lovely --- the outside dining and lawn area was lovely and we ate out there every chance we got The people were so accommodating and can't say enough about both the service and placement of this Parador.
Originally a 16th century palace, the Avila Parador retains many of its features. It backs up to the historic city wall and has a pleasant garden. It is located within the city wall in the historic district. Our very large room overlooked the garden and wall. We slept well. The staff was very helpful, especially on arrival and throughout our stay. The restaurant had an elegant atmosphere. It served many local dishes. The waitstaff was most professional. Due to its location parking is an issue. We arrived too late for an outdoor space and we're offered the garage at an additional cost. This worked out well as the elevator went to the gsrage, and we had a wide space.
It gives a special feeling to stay in this historical building. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is very good. It is though easy to hear all kind of noise from corridor and other rooms. Big plus for a nice garden to enjoy sun and nice weather.
A great hotel near the centre of town and in the historic quarter. Good parking, excellent staff, good breakfast and evening meal. Excellent value. Avila is a lovely city to visit and worth a couple of days at least, not far from Madrid, easy access via the motorways.
A delightful building just inside the city wall of this historic and world-heritage city. Very welcoming and helpful staff in an attractive hotel with a perfect location for exploring the delightful city of Avila. It's a fairly heavily used hotel with a large party in residence on the night we stayed but it is sufficiently large to cope with that. The room was spacious, well-equipped and very comfortable. The restaurant team managed, just, to keep pace with the demands at breakfast which was generous and satisfying. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening, so cannot comment on dinner. Worth stopping off here, I'd say.
Avila is a World Heritage city with over 1km of walls mostly walkable with views into the old city and over the countryside. Parador is situated just inside the city walls with a lovely private garden.
We enjoyed our stay in this Parador once one initial issue had been sorted out. The first room we were shown to was on a fairly noisy road (we had asked for a quiet Superior room) it was very large and majestic with a four poster bed but not for us due to the noise. The second room was perfect - slightly smaller but quietly situated overlooking the peaceful gardens which are lovely. This issue was sorted out very efficiently by the receptionist and all was well. Our luggage was taken to our room for us which is always appreciated. The hotel building is very historic and atmospheric including a suit of armour in the reception entrance, and is just as we imagined it would be. The staff are friendly and helpful, at times not enough of them in the bar serving/cleaning tables but I guess we were there at the tail end of the summer season. The food and wine in the garden bar are both good, and if you are not in the mood for a large meal then a snack here is just the job. Our room was comfortable with all that you could want, and had such a nice outlook. The bathroom was a bit tired, it needed refreshing, new shower screen etc.(there was initially a smell on entry but that was addressed by housekeeping) but the shower was good and strong, and it was all perfectly OK for the three nights we stayed. Avila is a great town to wander round and the Parador is close to all the sights, including an entrance to the Walls just beyond the hotel gardens. We enjoyed the history all around you, and Avila is slightly less touristy than Segovia and Toledo which are both extremely busy on that front.
Beautiful parador with every facility. Glorious building with elegant rooms, restaurant and bar. Great service from the lady bar tender who coped with a constant flow of requests for beer from 6 motorcyclists full of dust! Breakfast very nice but you need to be quick if the other tourists are not to strip the place bare in a heartbeat! Well worth a visit.
Everything and everyone at the Parador de Avila was exceptional in all aspects. The location, history of the Parador, cuisine , rooms, and helpfulness of the staff was fantastic. This was our second visit and we look forward to our next.
